    international perspective

    Q: If I want to use an adjective to describe a school who has an international perspective which is often many years ahead of other schools.

    What adjective can I use?

    Could I say this school has a visionary international perspective?

    Thanks for your help!

    Jason

    Re: international perspective

    Yes, but personally, I think "a visionary, global perspective" is a bit better.

    Do you think they are visionary because they have a global perspective, or are they forward thinking AND possessing a global perspective? If it's the former, delete my comma.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
